ABSTRACT
The article profiles Belgian poet Liliane Wouters. Wouters was born in Ixelles in the province of Hainaut in 1930. She graduated from Ecole Normale in Gijzegen. She was brought up and educated in two national languages of her native country, thus is completely bilingual and her bi-cultural background has been a constant source of enrichment in all her work. Her poetry is described as suffused with agnostic mysticism though she distanced herself from religion. Woulters is one of the major playwrights in Belgium.
